It’s no secret that Apple is grappling with a slowdown in iPhone sales. We have seen the company pull in more revenue from its software services business over the past few years and it’s continuing with this strategy to offset the decline in hardware sales. To that end, Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that Apple is going to launch new services this year.
Apple CEO Tim Cook came out strongly against what he referred to as the ‘weaponization’ of user data today. Speaking at the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners in Brussels, he added that Apple is in full support of a “comprehensive federal privacy law in the United States.” He also praised Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR which provides consumers with greater control over their personal data […]
You may have read a conspiracy theory online in the past year that Apple intentionally slows down old iPhones to get people to buy its latest smartphones. The company later confirmed that it does slow down iPhones that have naturally degraded batteries but it’s not for the nefarious reason that conspiracy theorists believe. The company has apologized for it previously and in a new interview Apple CEO Tim Cook says […]
We’re all in agreement that $1000 is a lot of money. For that price you can get two decent mid-range smartphones, a Mac, a variety of Windows-powered notebooks to choose from, iPads, and more. Or you could spend $1000 on the base model of the iPhone X. By no stretch of the imagination is the iPhone X not an expensive smartphone but Apple CEO Tim Cook’s logic doesn’t make it […]
The current Apple CEO Tim Cook has been holding the top job at Apple ever since Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs decided to step down. He was previously serving as the company’s chief operating officer under Steve Jobs.

Nobody is going to hold a grudge against you if you forgot about the Mac mini. Apple hasn’t updated this product in over three years but it seems that the company isn’t pulling the plug on the Mac mini just yet. In response to a query about the Mac mini’s future, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that it remains an “important part” of Apple’s product lineup.
An interesting meeting between Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and Apple CEO Tim Cook that took place back in 2015 has been described in a new report by The New York Times. Cook apparently called Kalanick for a one-on-one after the company found out that Uber had found a secret way to track individual iPhones even once the ride-sharing service’s app was removed from the phone. He was predictable unhappy about […]
President-elect Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed his preference to see Apple start producing iPhones in the United States and he has been vocal about it. Apple’s entire production setup for the iPhone exists in China and it’s not just that, the majority of its suppliers are based in Asia so it’s going to be easier said than done. In an interview with Axios, the president-elect said that he spoke with […]
CEOs of big companies often have their remuneration tied to the company’s performance. This gives them more incentive to work hard and push the company to meet its goals so that they can earn more money, it’s a simple formula but it has proven to be quite effective.

Hillary Clinton has already picked her running mate for the upcoming presidential election but if supposedly leaked emails from her campaign manager John Podesta are believed, she may have considered putting two notable figures from the tech industry on the ticket. Recently leaked emails reveal that Microsoft co-founder and ex-CEO Bill Gates as well as current Apple CEO Tim Cook were both considered as potential vice president nominees.
Barbra Streisand is a legend in her own right. You and I might not be the kind of people to get Apple CEO Tim Cook on the phone but she certainly is. In an interview with NPR, Streisand talked about the distress that Siri caused her as she wasn’t pronouncing her name correctly. So Streisand did what most of us can not do if Siri pronounces our name incorrectly, she […]
China is one of the most lucrative markets on the planet and Apple knows that.

Apple is going to build its first Asia-Pacific research and development center in China.
There has been a lot of speculation about Apple’s car plans. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has even said that it’s an open secret that Apple is working on an electric car. The company itself hasn’t addressed these reports as yet but CEO Tim Cook has dropped an indication now which could mean that we might have to wait for a considerably long time before we get to see an Apple […]
Apple CEO Tim Cook was at the Levi’s Stadium for the Super Bowl and soon after the Broncos won he posted a very blurry photo to Twitter. Naturally, the trolls were out in full force, so he got viciously trolled for posting a blurry picture. Some even suggested that he dump his iPhone for a Samsung to take better pictures. The PR machine seems to be active now as that […]
